What is the recovery time for microblading?

There is no downtime, however the brows will take about 7-14 days to fully heal.

The final result will appear between 5 to 10 weeks.  As the skin goes through it's natural healing process, your brows will look patchy and the color more muted. This is completely normal and expected. The color of your new brows will soften by up to 40 to 50%. This is why it is crucial to come back for your touch-up session within suggested time!

Please follow these instructions to ensure proper healing and color retention. Please note that color appears darker for a few days after your treatment. Do not worry, this is temporary. Color will soften and will appear more natural as the healing progresses, we promise! It is normal to experience peeling of pigment. Fading or loss of pigment may occur during healing, in fact, it is expected, especially for your first treatment! Do not pick. Allow it to fall off naturally.

 

STEP 1: 1 HOUR AFTER YOUR TREATMENT rinse very gently with a neutral ph unscented soap (Cetaphil) and warm water. Remove all the lymph. Dab the area dry with a clean cotton pad and reapply a very thin layer of the aftercare ointment. Avoid getting the area wet for additional 7 days other than the normal required post-care cleansing process (i.e. swimming, sauna, etc). Repeat this step every 3-4 hours for the first day of your procedure until you go to sleep.

STEP 2: FOR THE FOLLOWING 3 DAYS, REPEAT STEP 1, 3-5X TIMES A DAY. 
For Normal/Oily/Combination Skin: Apply ointment 3x a day
For Dry Skin: Apply ointment 5x a day

IN THE NEXT 14 DAYS maintain facial hygiene and apply the cream after washing your face or having a shower, as well as throughout the day. DO NOT use an exfoliator.
